representative + from/of + 某公司

請問「ABC公司派來的代表」到底是representative of ABC company還是representative from ABC company啊?

以下是全段的中文原句和我翻譯的英文:

展會期間,許多來自歐洲、日本和中東知名複合集合店的代表造訪了台灣館,與參展設計師洽談合作。

Moreover, during the XYZ trade show, representatives of many renowned multi-brand stores in Europe, Japan and Middle East visited Taiwan Pavilion and talked with the designers of exhibitors for future business cooperation.

我是認為representative的介係詞應該用of,但卻看到許多人在類似以上的context裡用了from。雖然已查過線上字典了,但還是不太明白。所以就上來請教各位前輩囉。謝謝!

例句 1. a representative of the U.N.

例句 2. The committee includes representatives from industry.

已更新項目:

看過Louis大大的說明後,我覺得我應該用of. 對吧?

    representative 後面用of時,表示隸屬關係,用from時,表示來源。兩個介系詞都可以用。

    Delegates will meet with representatives from industry and the government.表示來自工業界和政府這兩方的代表,所以用from

    看你的中文意思,可以選用from

    The Congress is representive of the people.=國會是國民的代表。

    The orange dude is too critical - a language is a language. Whatever is popular becomes acceptable and the norm.

    I think both are fine and more importantly understandable with differences. "of" is to suggest the reporting structure and "from" to imply the source.

    My sister would strongly disagree with you on that - I am the queen of evilness.
